Mt Fuji WiFi: Free WiFi Service for Climbing Mt Fuji

by Ryu_C@RakuRakuJP

Can I use WiFi now while climbing Mount Fuji?

If this is your first time climbing Mount Fuji, I believe you will want to share your experience climbing Mount Fuji with your family and friends, or share the sunrise view you saw on top of Mount Fuji to social media.

In the past, when there was no WiFi service on Mount Fuji, you could only rely on weak mobile phone signals to send photos to friends, and sometimes you would not be able to receive them at all due to network problems. However, since the WiFi service was installed on Mount Fuji, you can now use the WiFi service at designated locations and share the sea of clouds and starry sky you saw while climbing Mount Fuji with others anytime, anywhere.

Key points in choosing a WiFi sharer

In addition to using Mount Fuji's WiFi service, you may also consider bringing a WiFi sharer for use during your climb on Mount Fuji and during subsequent sightseeing trips. However, when choosing a WiFi sharer, you must pay attention to the following points.

Signal coverage

In theory, every telecommunications company will lay out mobile Internet services in Mount Fuji, allowing customers to connect to the Internet anytime and anywhere. However, in fact, only some WiFi sharers with high monthly fees can use telecommunications service plans with higher coverage.

Therefore, when choosing a WiFi sharer, it is recommended to choose some WiFi sharer from a large telecommunications company, so that there will be no disconnection during the climb to Mount Fuji. For example, some WiFi sharers with built-in Docomo SIM cards can reduce the chance of disconnection.

When climbing Mount Fuji, you should first pay attention to your own safety, and then share the scenery of Mount Fuji with your friends. Because of this, the purpose of setting up Mount Fuji's WiFi service is to allow you to check the weather forecast anytime, anywhere and seek assistance when needed. This way you can safely climb to the top of Mount Fuji and share the view with your friends.
